Why didn’t I read this little story when it came? I really enjoyed The Raven’s Luck by Laylah Hunter. I mostly picked it because it was short and because I have a thing for assassins – I mean what sane girl hasn’t? LOL – but once I started reading I lost myself in the story.
Sam and Rio are both assassins, they start out as rivals trying to impress each other with their skills and witty comments, but then comes a job they need to cooperate on. Sparks fly, both actual and metaphorical, and when the story neared the end I wished it had been longer. I would’ve loved to read more about the world Sam and Rio are in and I’m sure there are more politicians who need to die.
A great little read and lucky for us all it was written as part the Goodreads M/M Romance Group’s Don’t Read in the Closet event and is, therefore, free. If you like a little Sci-Fi and a dead guy or two then give it a go.
I’d like him to be an assassin of some sort. Bonus points if we get to see him get his hands dirty. Extra bonus points for moral ambiguity. I don’t know or care what race (human, elf, fey, etc.) Some sort of storyline outside the romance would be good, and at least some world-building would be nice. I enjoy battles and fighting. There should probably be some sort of fantasy element present, but I leave that completely at your discretion. Setting (historical, fantasy, contemporary) is also up to the author. I just want to see someone tell this guy’s story, whatever it may be
